A 38-page booklet produced by the 45th Company, 12th Receiving Battalion, 162nd Depot Brigade of Camp Pike, Arkansas, in late 1918. During World War I, Depot Brigades received and organized recruits, provided them with uniforms, equipment and initial military training, and then sent them to France to fight on the front lines. They also received soldiers returning home at the end of the war and completed their out processing and discharges. "The Flying 45th" was organized in June 1918 but remained in Arkansas until after the end of the war.
